Someone I work with asked me if I would be interested in a Gravely garden tractor. Has 12 HP Kohler, front blade and is a rear engine rider. Now obviously I said of course I am interested (even though I have no room for it). I drew the conclusion of it being an 812, so now the real question, what do I look for, and what should I think about offering... No pictures as of yet, ut looking at ballpark condition vs price figures.

12 horse Gravely rider could be a 12G, an 812? or an 812 as you have said. I don't think it would be one of the really early 400 series, though if it were I think it would be a 430. All of them would probably be Kohler engines. I've never owned one, but by all accounts they are all tough tractors. The various clutches do wear out occasionally, and that is often a cause for major surgery to correct. Well worth it though. Love to see some pics.

Pricing.....It always depends, but my best guess would be:
430--$600
812--$1000
812?--$1200
12G--$1500

I think I have these sorted from oldest to newest. These prices could be way out of line for your area. Here in NC you don't see riders come up for sale very often. I think I once hit the mother-lode of Gravelys somewhere in the Baltimore area on Craigslist. Too far to buy, but a search of cities in that area might give you some idea what they are moving for.
